Tottenham defender Davies: We let the club and manager down

Tottenham defender Ben Davies has apologised to fans for their Carabao Cup shock at Colchester United.

Spurs completed a miserable week by crashing out of the Carabao Cup following a 4-3 defeat on penalties at the JobServe Community Stadium after a frustrating 0-0 draw.

“It's horrible - it's a trophy, a good chance to pick something up and we've let it slip at the first hurdle," left-back Davies told the London Evening Standard.

“The manager didn't need to say anything afterwards. In the dressing room, we were all as disappointed as him. We let him down, we let the club down.

“We weren't terrible. We just didn't seem to click, didn't put anything together. We have to win these games. We have to show we're a better side than this. It's a tough feeling right now.

"We just have to apologise to the supporters, too. We let them down. They travel with us everywhere and they're first-class. We need everyone behind us now to help us push on through this difficult time."
